Books to look forward to in 2014

A New Year Resolution to read more books about economics?

It’s time for a browse through the publishers’ catalogues to see what enticing economics and business books will be out in the next few months (this is of course a non-exhaustive list – I’m happy to update this if anybody knows of others coming out in the first half of 2014).

I have to indulge myself in putting my own new book first: 

is published on 23rd February.

Also from my publisher Princeton University Press, I like the look of the history title 

by Jurgen Osterhammel. Greg Clark’s 
looks like a highly distinctive take on the mobility question. Other new economics titles are 
by Eswar Prasad, 
(on banking crises) by Charles Calomiris and Stephen Haber, and T
by Ian Goldin and Mike Mariathasan. The best title in the catalogue could be 
by David Reimer – a guide to ancient maths.

At Harvard University Press, there is Thomas Piketty’s

, which I posted about recently. Also coming up,
by George Borjas

MIT Press has several I like the look of:

, edited by Richard M. Locke and Rachel Wellhausen;
, Edited by Ignacio Palacios-Huerta; 
by Vili Lehdonvirta and Edward Castronova; and 
by Josh Lerner (“drawing on the tools of game design to fix democracy.”)

[amazon_image id=”0262026910″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]In 100 Years: Leading Economists Predict the Future[/amazon_image]


Basic has Bill Easterly’s

out in March.

On Penguin’s forthcoming list: 
by Kate Kelly; 
by Amartya Sen; 
by Danny Dorling.
[amazon_image id=”1846147611″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]An Uncertain Glory: India and its Contradictions[/amazon_image]
From Faber in April, Gerard Lyons, now advising Boris Johnson on economics,

Later in the year Oxford University Press is bringing out

, Edited by Manuel Castells and Pekka Himanen; 
by Daniel W. Drezner; 
by Hans-Werner Sinn;  and 
by Tom Malleson looks quite interesting too.

[amazon_image id=”0199330107″ link=”true” target=”_blank” size=”medium” ]After Occupy: Economic Democracy for the 21st Century[/amazon_image]

Finally, I’m also looking forward to Philosophy at 3am: Questions and Answers with 25 top philosophers by Richard Marshall, who does the Friday morning philosophy interviews in 3am Magazine – always quirky, always interesting.
